The management of First Fridays of Florida , LLC in partnership with WHQT HOT 105 FM have put the wheels in motion to stage the return of First Fridays Networking to South Florida on February 6, 2009. With the inauguration of the first African American President of the United States and the month of February being celebrated as Black History Month as well as Reggae Month, there was no better time to execute the return of this event.
